Malabar Hill allows one to take in the view of the Arabian Sea along with Marine Drive and the Queens Necklace. It comprises of Walkeshwar, Nepean Sea Road and Ridge Road. Hanging Gardens are a tourist spot. Many celebrities and business honchos live here.

This is a great vantage point from which to view the beauty of Bombay; on a clear day you can see the Queen's necklace and the city skyline. It is also a snooty upmarket Residential locality surrounded by the famous Hanging Gardens and the Kamala Nehru Park. These are the lungs of Bombay and are still in neat condition.

A great public hilltop garden built on top of a reservoir. Besides the Hanging Gardens it is necessary for every family to visit the Kamala Nehru Park near it. The Park has a great view of Chopatty and Marine Drive. The Queens Necklace is most admirable from this location

The drive from Marine Drive to the bottom of the hill and till the very exit on Peddar Road is probably the most scenic one in the city. Make a stop at the Hanging Garden (preferably towards the evening time) to get the stunning view of the Marine Drive as in my accompanied picture. There's also a stunning Jain Temple... More

Malabar Hill comes with a tag of the most expensive real estate. Not many options for bars and restaurants here. But its a good place for a drive if you with your partner. Its quiet and on a hill.

20 ancient Hindu temples line the circumference of this deep set lake right in the heart of Mumbai. Brahman priests perform rituals at the water's edge, people swim and bathe, and many live in small huts nearby. One of my favorite parts of visiting Mumbai.
